Vinyl SotD - The Attika State


Neil Gardner is a bit of an audio guru, being the brains behind an award winning spoken word production company. But sometimes he likes to retreat from the digital studio to listen to some music analogue style, on vinyl. This time he advises us to Take it Easy on Those Corners Baby...

Format: 12″ Pink Marble Vinyl

A 5 track EP of incredible melodic rock. Beautiful heartfelt vocals vie with energetic, pacey instrumentation. This is a modern rock band who have mastered the art of ‘band playing’ with no one player showboating, and the whole being lifted by the skills of its parts. All 5 tracks showcase fantastic storytelling lyrics blended with toe-tapping music.


The EP has a 90s indie vibe, solid tight playing and accomplished production. This is a band I just know are brilliant in a live environment. A mix of crowd-pleasing anthems and thought-provoking indie-rock think-pieces. There’s terrific high tempo drumming, and the overall feeling is that this would fit perfectly as the closing live track in the film EMPIRE RECORDS.

Plus: what an incredible piece of cover art!

Finyl Thought: 5 tracks of non-stop outrageously amazing melodic rock – now we need a full LP!
